Spotlight on AlumniOur alumni live and work all over the world in every field imaginable. Read below our graduates’ stories and the impact Tower has had on their lives.
Halle’s advice for current Tower students is to “stick with your gut and do what makes you happy.” Halle looks back on her time at Tower and how it inspired her love of history and art.
“If you can make a career doing what you love, you’ll look forward to work every day. Listen to those inner voices, it’s right there. Love snowboarding? Work for Burton. Passionate about fly-fishing? Get a job at Orvis. Once you determine your passion, chase experience, not money, and that’s what will make you the most successful in the long run.”
"Tower has passionate teachers who make the Tower community so special."
"Tower really gave me the creativity and confidence to tackle writing. Being able to write well, to express yourself and capture your thoughts on paper, is a huge part of success in high school, and even more so in college."
“Tower taught me how to put myself out there. Don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone and chat with everyone. You never know what lifelong friends you could meet or where different connections could lead.”
"My advice would be to follow what you love. You are all still so young that you will have the opportunity to try so many different things. Remember, you should always trust your instinct and to push yourself to take every opportunity."
"My experience at Tower was very positive and provided me with the core skills that have allowed me to be successful. I think of being instilled with kindness, creativity, hard work, respect, and curiosity. You can go anywhere if you have these principles."
"My success is a reflection of the people that I surround myself with and the people at Tower are part of that circle."
“The range–and quality–of Tower’s academics and extracurriculars are what separates the school from any others I know. In retrospect, my only regret during my time at Tower is that I didn’t experience more of what it had to offer.”
